Abstract

The high spatial and temporal variability of dynamical processes in aquatic environments requires appropriate monitoring and forecasting methods and strate- gies. The combination of necessarily spotlike measurements with precise circu- lation and transport models is the basic idea of operational modelling to cope with these requirements. Under the EUREKA-EUROMAR umbrella the OP- MOD project (Operational MODelling of Regional Seas and Coastal Waters) has been performed by 11 European institutions. Existent modelling and mea- surement techniques were combined into a flexible operational tool for a wide range of environmental monitor
